The Yellow Vest protests, which have rocked France from the Île to the coasts since November, have experienced a second wind after a series of small concessions by the Macron government were deemed insufficient. The initial impetus for the demonstrations were of course the Macron government’s significant fuel tax and inspection fee increases, but beyond […]

[Presented by Mao at the 9th Congress of the Communist Party, Correcting Mistaken Ideas remains vibrant and useful to comrades struggling today. Its value does not lie only with military affairs, nor affairs of formations with pretenses to a party. Right-opportunism that neglects subjective work and propaganda of all types, primadonnas that reject small tasks, and […]

[A century after the end of the first world war, and on the cusp of the third, we find it fitting to republish Lenin’s revisiting of Engels’ prophetic words. Certainly we are faced with many of the same problems: social-chauvinism parading itself as socialism; rising militarism and nationalism; a boiling world-economic crisis. Indeed, these are […]

Most readers will not, by now, require a recapitulation of the condition and origins of the so-called ‘migrant caravan’ currently stalled in Mexico. If so, one might begin here, here, and here. What we seek to do is clarify the class-nature of the crisis, the enemy, and the position of the proletarian camp. Like most […]

In a reversal stunning absolutely no one, neoliberal ideologue Francis Fukuyama has abandoned that thoroughly sunken ship known as the “end of history” thesis, presumably after shutting off the lights and donning a snorkel. The series of half-hearted defenses of his almost 30-year-wrong position, which were really just half-hearted disavowals, were issued in a recent […]

[The following review by Wiawimawo of J. Sakai’s The Dangerous Class and Revolutionary Theory was originally published by MIM(Prisons).

With reports of the inclusion in the new Cuban constitution of clauses reifying and protecting private property, an analysis of revisionist trends and the ongoing project for capitalist restoration in Cuba and beyond has once again become relevant for the world communist movement. According to TeleSUR, reporting on a series of statements from Granma, the […]

Some time has passed since our last update, but the war has not been put on hold. The u.$. imperialists have continued their campaign of murder and theft against the Afghan people, and have met with stiffer resistance as a result. The “forever war” drags on, despite the supposed “absolute superiority” of the amerikan military, […]

Given the ever-increasing turbulence in the euro-amerikan alliance, it would not be unrealistic to entertain the idea that a tipping point could soon be reached, and europe may soon be done with their long-standing imperial partner for good. Increasingly important infrastructure, trade and investment deals with China and Russia, the largest competitors to the united […]

The massacres carried out by the israeli Apartheid state, the rejection by Netanyahu of the old u.$.-sponsored two-state solution, and the growing fanaticism of the israeli population all inform against the well-manicured public image of the “Jewish state”. In January, both Haaretz and the New York Times carried pieces all but proclaiming the two-state solution […]

Yesterday, u.$. strongman Donald Trump thanked NK leader Kim Jong-un, “who really was excellent” to the three amerikans he ordered released from detention.

Anti-imperialism provides a platform for anyone who shares a broad communist, anti-imperialist and third-worldist politics. For a a rosier piece on the recent talks in Korea, see our […]

By now readers are probably aware that the shoddy ‘Russia did it!’ tapestry so giddily hot-glued together by Boris Johnson, Theresa May, and the London media establishment has unraveled, along with any hope for stability, let alone credibility, for the May government. It’s now clear that Yulia and Sergei Skripal have both made a miraculous […]

The people of Borikén have been chained down by colonial rule for as long as they have been labeled Puerto Ricans. Our identity has been shaped by spanish and now amerikan rule. The double-crisis of Hurricane Maria and overwhelming debt gives us the opportunity to step back to revisit how imperialist “aid” furthers the colonial […]
